The aluminium support feature that is built into the plastic part of the Push CMC can be bent to the shape of the thenar. Before applying the brace, hold the brace with both hands and bend the support part of the brace so it is slightly more open. You can then fit the brace, fix the straps and ask the wearer to form an O shape with their thumb and index finger. Be sure the thumb muscles are relaxed. After doing this apply pressure to shape the aluminium support part around the thenar. The brace will now be in the best position to allow optimum function by the user. 2
